This is the 60th installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. A new player will be previewed every day from now until the Browns preseason begins. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one. I try to keep these articles short and sweet.
#81- Rashard Higgins– WR- Colorado State
In most of these breakdowns I have taken the honor of giving a nickname to each Browns player. Rashard Higgins doesn’t need my help in that category since he is already has a sweet moniker, Hollywood. The last time I saw Cleveland go Hollywood was when they filmed the first Avengers movie in town. Of course, that film went on to shatter all kinds of records. Higgins is going to help the Browns offense set some records of their own this year.
Higgins has made steady improvement every season with the Browns. His yearly yardage totals have gone from 77 to 312 to 572. He failed to score a touchdown his rookie year, tallied two scores in 2017, then found the end zone four times last year. If this pattern continues, Higgins will score 20 touchdowns in his 2026 season. Incredible stuff.
The Browns’ entire roster has been overturned, but the wide receiver position may be the most exciting. John Dorsey began his tenure with the Browns by trading for Jarvis Landry and drafting Antonio Callaway. This offseason, he went out and got Odell Beckham, Jr. The one guy who has been left intact from the previous regime’s receiver room has been Higgins. I joked about him scoring 20 touchdowns in a few years, but I truly believe he can be special. Baker Mayfield also seems to have a good rapport with him as well. Everyone is excited to watch OBJ and Landry this season (myself included), but I am just as pumped to see Higgins and Callaway continue to develop and grow.
